UPDATE: I wrote this last night and thought I posted it, but this morning found it in the drafts. Weird. Anyway, here it is.
This is bad. I'm already steamed about the hacking into Palin's email account. And then I make the mistake of tuning into NBC news.
Right now, there's a big story about how "reporters are still fact-checking" everything Palin has said so far.
Could anybody fact check anything that Obama says? Could somebody bother to look into his connections with convicted criminals and domestic terrorists? Can anybody please take every offhand statement that Biden makes and blow it up into a big old segment on the Nightly News?
Let me just say this, Ms. Reporter, Savannah Guthrie, whose snide voice is at this very moment coming over my TV set:
I don't believe one single thing you say. I'd like someone to fact-check you, because my trust in you and your network is zero. I know from personal experience that the media lies, twists, and distorts things, that mainstream media are in the tank for Obama and have been for several years now, that you hate the right and will do everything in your power to destroy McCain and Palin.
So you can take your petty, one-sided fact-checking and your stupid little report and your smug little smile at the end and go put it in a vault somewhere filed under"Bias", or "Mean-Spirited Attacks", or maybe "How the Press Destroyed Itself".
I'll go find the truth somewhere else, thank you very much.
UPDATE: This article at NewsBusters notes that their "fact checking" isn't too convincing.
